Chris McCormick’s debut novel in stories, Desert Boys (Picador) is told from the perspective of a teenager coming of age in a small exurb community in the Mojave Desert in California and from the young gay man he later becomes, blurring the lines between the rural and urban, insider and outsider, citizen and immigrant, and the masculine and effeminate. “Tender, heartfelt, fully realized stories about family, friendship, and love.… When we leave Antelope Valley we immediately want to go back, so achingly good are these beautifully conceived stories.”-Kirkus.
